King James Version (KJV)

1 Esdras 3:8

5. Let euery one of vs speake a sentence: hee that shall ouercome, & whose sentence shall seeme wiser then the others, vnto him shall the king Darius giue great gifts, and great things in token of victory: 6. As to be clothed in purple, to drink in golde, and to sleepe vpon golde, and a chariot with bridles of golde, and an head-tyre of fine linen, and a chaine about his necke: 7. And hee shall sit next to Darius, because of his wisedome, and shalbe called, Darius his cousin. 8. And then euery one wrote his sentence, sealed it, and laide it vnder king Darius his pillow, 9. And sayd, that when the king is risen, some will giue him the writings, and of whose side the king, and the three princes of Persia shall iudge, that his sentence is the wisest, to him shall the victory be giuen as was appointed. 10. The first wrote: Wine is the strongest. 11. The second wrote: The King is strongest.
